CWAA Breeze Newsletter October 23 – 27, 2017

FOOD BANK FRIDAY: This Friday, October 27th is Food Bank Friday. All staff and students are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item for our Food Bank and dress in casual clothes.

SPIRIT DAY ON OCTOBER 30: Our Student Association is planning a “Spirit Day” and a class challenge for Monday, Oct 30th. This is a day when all students will dress up to represent their chosen theme. Elementary and Secondary class challenges will be separate; the time for each challenge will be announced later.

Here are the guidelines:

Elementary Grades – Animals (Teachers will inform parents about class theme)

Secondary Grades – Time Period (Decade) from the 20th Century

 No Halloween costumes or anything associated with Halloween

 Remember to follow school policy dress code

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD SHOEBOXES: It’s that time of year again when our CWAA school family has the opportunity to participate in packing Operation Christmas Child boxes for kids in underprivileged parts of the world.  Join us in packing a box (or multiple boxes) for this special project. If you would like some boxes, please contact Pastor Brent Wilson(bwilson@cwaa.net). Some classes will probably pack boxes as a class activity. Some families will want to take boxes home to pack as a family. Please get your boxes turned in by Friday, November 17th. This is another great opportunity to be Servants of Life!

PRAYING PARENTS: Praying parents will meet this week on Thursday, October 26. Come join us in the lobby as we pray for our school, our teachers, our students and our families right after school begins.

CANADIAN ACHIEVEMENT TEST (CAT): Test results from the 2016-17 school year have been delivered to CWAA and are being sent home with students this week. Please look for these coming home if your child is in Grades 3 – 9!
